My favorite pie is key lime pie. I love it. It’s not always in stock though, so whenever it’s gone, I don’t bother to eat any other pies available because in my opinion, if it’s not key lime pie, it’s not a pie worth eating. But it’s been awhile since it has been restocked. I didn’t think it would ever come back into stock.
It had been so long since I’ve had any pie, and I missed eating pie, so I decided to try one of the other pies in stock. Dutch apple pie. It was delicious. It was just the right amount of sweetness. And even though I swore off any other pies while I waited for key lime pie to be restocked, I couldn’t help myself but slowly, sheepishly, develop a soft spot for Dutch apple pie.
Then out of the blue, key lime pie was restocked. I was elated. Of course I jumped on the chance to enjoy it again. But it didn’t taste as delicious as I remembered. It was somehow, just less. I felt shocked and a little sad about it. For the first time while eating key lime pie, I wasn’t loving it. I wasn’t sure if key lime pie was my favorite anymore. I found myself craving Dutch apple pie instead.
-Maybe it’s too late for you to come back & fix things (I’m not sure I love you anymore)

"yes…..yes I think that is a thing you might well do eventually. Still, no matter. It’s a risk that must be taken.“
